As a former ELA and Social Studies teacher and current educator trainer, I've realized that more now than ever, it is imperative that we increase the exposure to ELA skills that allow our students to access and critically think about the information in front of them. As a result of my experiences, it was important to me to create a product that would guide teachers through the appropriate Social Studies topics outlined in the new AZ Social Studies standards, including current events, while providing the tools and guidance to confidently raise the expectations for information processing and application. Those are the skills that will transcend far beyond our individual classrooms. From that, The Social Studies Connection Curriculum Guide (for middle grades) was born.
After piloting the product for two years with real middle school teachers in an inner-city Phoenix district, receiving feedback, and refining multiple times, The Social Studies Connection Curriculum Guide is ready for implementation with your students!
